The herd has grown!
This past weekend we brought home a new addition to the farm. Welcome Lucy, a two year old bred Holstein heifer to the farm! Lucy came form a farm in upstate Connecticut and is already a wonderful addition to the herd. Lucy is due to have a calf in February and will be helping us work toward our goal of becoming a micro dairy. Back in the 1800's and early 1900's our farm was a dairy with several cows in the operation and over two hundred acres of land. The property is much smaller now but the remnants of the dairy operation are still there. We plan on restoring what we can while still modernizing the dairy operation to conform to all the current dairy regulations. Currently our herd of four consists of Holsteins but we are planning on adding other breeds of cows. Our goal is to have the dairy up and running by February so we can bring the community some local fresh milk from our cows and from our goats as well.
